About the Artist :
I have had a passion for creating paintings and art since I can remember. I can see art and beauty in everything that surrounds me everyday.

As long as I have a media or pigment and surface to apply it to I'm in my element. I create my work out of any materials I can lay my hands on, and enjoy experimenting with unusual media and techniques. I see myself somewhat as a prolific artist, sometimes I work on multiple creations.

Through Abstract Expressionism I feel the most at ease and paint from the heart and soul. I let the work create themselves, sometimes I follow the shapes and figures that appear on the surface, and let the work "speak" to me.
Other times I will work with the "happy accidents" and work until there's nothing left for me to do on the surface.

My idols include the true masters of there time - Picasso, Pollock, Rothko, Miro,Van Gogh, Mondrian, Richter, Basqiuat, Schnabel that's just to name a few.

I'm still searching for the characteristics which a true master consists of -

something that's never done before and leaving a lasting imprint behind.
(don't know if it's going to happen in my lifetime)
